LithoLexal Bone Health Osteoporotic is an easily absorbed calcium supplement to help maintain strong bones, bone mineral density and bone strength.
LithoLexal® Bone Health helps to maintain normal bone health, which helps to reduce the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness. Falling is a risk factor for bone fractures among men and women 50 years of age and older. LithoLexal® Bone Health contains a unique plant-based ingredient, specific to all LithoLexal® products, different from the rock-based ingredient (Dolomite) of generic and branded calcium products available today, which by nature is difficult to absorb.
Containing 2,500 mg of the proprietary marine extract LithoLexal® (a plant derived complex) and 4.4 mg Vercilexal® (cartilage specific proteoglycans), the formulation provides bioavailable Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D to reduce the loss of bone mineral in post menopausal women age 50+ and to support the natural development and preservation of healthy, strong and dense bones.
Benefits of Bone Health Osteoporotic:
- Maintaining strong and dense bones post menopause (50+)
- Reducing the loss of bone mineral
- Healthy Ageing Award Ingredient of the Year
- Plant-based and drug-free

What is LithoLexal®?
LithoLexal® is a multi-molecular, bioactive, slow-release calcium complex. Utilising a slow-release nanoparticulate matrix, as the extract is digested, the nanoparticles peel away fully in tact, like an onion. This is critical to how the multi-molecular complex exerts its range of bioactive properties.
What makes LithoLexal® better than alternatives?
Thanks to the bioactive properties of LithoLexal®, there are a raft of benefits that won’t be found in generic, off the shelf calcium products:
- Increased bioavailability of Calcium and Magnesium - The marine plant structure, and the formation of the LithoLexal® extract, leads to an increase of up to double the amount of elemental calcium that is absorbed by the body. In addition to calcium, there is a healthy amount of Magnesium, which is also important in the maintenance of bones.
- Increased mineralisation of bone cells - In addition to the calcium and magnesium, there are over 70 additional trace minerals present in the LithoLexal® extract. Alone, they don’t offer too many benefits in these small quantities, but the combined effect of the extract means that these minerals are used to help construct up to three times the amount of bone matter, when compared to generic calcium products.
- Increased impact when paired with Vitamin D - Another vital component of bone health is vitamin D. In the UK, it is recommended to use a supplement all year round to maintain vitamin D levels as we don’t have enough reliable sunlight exposure. The role of vitamin D is to help transport calcium to the blood, and when combining this with the high bioavailability of the LithoLexal extract it has a far more significant impact than generic calcium alternatives.
- ‘Bone Health Approved’ by the Royal Osteoporosis Society - LithoLexal is one of the first products – and the first food supplement – to be expertly assessed and accredited with the ‘Bone Health Approved’ status by the ROS – the UKs biggest charity dedicated to tackling Osteoporosis.
- Clinically proven - LithoLexal is supported by over 25 bespoke scientific and clinical studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of the unique extract – unlike generic calcium products that rely on pre-existing generic scientific data.
